No Christ to go to in my need — No Christ to comfort me and feed ! He passed in glory out of sight, The angels drew him into light ; Now in the lonesome earth and air I cannot find him anywhere. Would God that heaven were not so far And I were where the White Ones are ! Then from the grey stones of a street Where goes an ocean drift of feet, I heard a .child’s cry trembling up, ‘And turned to share my scanty cup. When, 10, the Christ I thought was dead Was in the little one I fed ! At this I drew my aching eyes From the far-watching of the skies ; And now which ever way I turn I see my Lord’s white halo burn ! Wherever now a sorrow stands, -’Tis mine to heal His nail-worn hands ; In every lonely lane and street, mine to wash His wounded feet, ’Tis mine to roll away the Stone

And warm His heart against my own. Here, here, on Earth, I find it all — The young archangels white and tall, The Golden City and the doors. And all the shining of the floors !
